New stretch goal: signed bookplates!
WE REACHED $45,000!!! This means extra illustrations for every book! :D Also, we've just tipped over the 1000 backer mark, which is pretty damn cool.
New stretch goal: $50,000
Now we definitely have enough money for extra interior illustrations, the next goal will be another upgrade for all the books ordered by Kickstarter backers -- an exclusive reward to you guys for helping us get this far! We want to put a special ex-libris/bookplate in each of the Kickstarter books, something that will not be included in any of the books we sell in stores or on Amazon later on. The bookplates will be designed and illustrated by the cover artists, and then signed by the authors. If we reach $50,000, bookplates will automatically be added to every single physical book.
Obviously you guys have already backed us, but if you're interested in signed bookplates in each of your books, we need to get a few more backers! You can help boost the signal by reblogging our final Tumblr publicity post, or spreading the word to your friends and social media circles.
Thank you so much, everyone! Not too long to go, now! Unless we miraculously reach another stretch goal early, this will be the last of our Obama-style fundraising emails. :)))
